white women here in the state of ohio. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on

. senator rob portman, was he a tougher debater in those practice sessions than president obama turned out to be? >> senator portman is very effective. i think president obama and i both have a good chance to describe our respective views as to how we'd do a better job. and i, frankly, think i benefited from the fact that rather than having people learn about me from ads prepared by my opposition, they got to actually hear what i would do for myself. and i think that helped me. i think the president also got to lay out his plans and people were able to make a comparison. but as for rob portman, he's a pretty effective guy. >> were you surprised by the president's performance? >> well, i actually thought he described pretty appropriately and pretty effectively his policies. i just happened to disagree with those policies. i mean, when we talked about the economy, he really is not proposing anything he hasn't talked about for the last four years, which is another stimulus, hiring more government workers, picking winners and losers in industries that he favors, raising taxes. these are ideas

at some of the senate races, particularly in democratic leaning states like massachusetts and connecticut. president obama being on the ballot will significantly help elizabeth warren and congressman murphy there. when you look at the house, though, the democrats would need to win 25 seats in order to regain it. that number i would actually equate to about 35 due to redistricting and different types of retirement and that number is very difficult. the one way in which you would have seen any movement there is perhaps this was a wave election but all the data indicates it's not, more of a turn out the base, fight over independent election like you saw in 2004. even had mitt romney -- one scenario i've talked about with republicans today, had mitt romney not done well at the debate last week and folks had seen the writing on the wall that perhaps this candidacy was doomed they would have done a bob dole 1996 strategy and doubled down on races in the house and senate and put resources there. romney on the uptick they won't do that. they think there's going to be a lot of enthusiasm for their
